The Oklahoma Sooners were looking to add a bit of talent to the starting unit in the secondary. Vying for a spot, Will Sunderland looked to be the one of the favorites heading into the 2017 season. However, Lincoln Riley announced the defensive back has been suspended indefinitely.
Jake Trotter of ESPN initially uncovered an issue after glancing over the Oklahoma City court records. Apparently, Sunderland as charged with concealing stolen property. On Thursday, a warrant was issued for his arrest. It is believed this lead to the indefinite suspension from the football program despite the university refusing to cite a specific reason at this point in time.
As of Monday the safety’s name has not appeared on any records noting an arrest for the accused crime. Over the course of the offseason the Sooners have now had four players tangled up with the law. Pending what happens in the future, Sunderland could also become the fourth arrested in the same time frame.
